FO alert

Charade-in progress

Remember these?

Pattern: Charade by Sandra Park
Yarn: SWTC Tofutsies
Needles: US 1, Magic Loop

Well, they are done. I finally finished my Charades! Yay! Aren't they pretty?

These were so long in the making. I kept pushing them aside while knitting all the Christmas gifts I needed to get done and only working on them a few rounds at a time. I absolutely love them. Love the pattern. Love the yarn. These I will keep for myself. Fortunately, they are just the right size for my size 6.5 feet. :)

So, I used the Magic Loop method for the first time on these. At first it was a bit awkward but I got the hang of it and really like it. So easy to tote around. No needles to lose. I don't think I will be throwing out the dpn's just yet, though. However, my Thuja's are on my one long set of US 1 Addi's since I started while out of town for the holidays.

(BTW, next post will be my 100th!!)


  1. Purties!!

    I'm glad you're keeping them for yourself. It's always good to do things for you once in a while.

    100 posts! Wow!

  2. I like a color a lor too, and I love the pattern. I some "Magic Loop" needles, but I haven't tried them yet. I think I'm a conservative when it comes to socks. I haven't tried "toe-ups" either.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
